We are thrilled to confirm we have been inundated with entries of fabulous women and are now compiling the shortlist for the IMAGE Women of the Year Awards, brought to you by Tesco finest*.

While you’re waiting on the exciting shortlist announcement, we can share some fantastic news with you! Broadcaster and inspirational woman herself Miriam O’Callaghan will present the awards on December 10, in the stunning surroundings of the Westbury Hotel in Dublin.

Miriam, co-host of RTE’s Prime Time and a busy mum-of-eight, will be on hand to MC the awards, in which Tesco finest* are celebrating women all over the country who have inspired, made a difference, and didn’t look for recognition, in their communities, workplaces, on sport fields and beyond.

Women of the Year Awards

Tesco finest* wants to recognise the everyday heroes who are making a difference, and who never look for praise. These women are often the backbone of their families, offices, teams, and social spaces, but are unaware of it.

Hundreds of you nominated inspiring women, and we can’t wait to give back to them.

Nominees and guests at the Awards on December 10 can expect a five-star drinks reception in the plush luxury of the Westbury. This will be followed by a delicious three-course meal from Westbury head chef Sandeep Singh.

Deserving winners will be announced in the following categories: Community Spirit, Fundraiser of the Year, Carer of the Year, Special Recognition, Courage Award, when guests will have the chance to hear these women’s inspirational stories, and thank them for their selfless acts.

Tesco finest* can’t wait to celebrate these everyday heroes with you at what promises to be a fun-filled, heartwarming and celebratory day!
